As liquid cargo handled by ports consists of products from various industries, the key industries impacting growth of liquid cargo were studied. The forecast for the traffic was arrived at 2 levels
a. National level forecasts for the commodity
b. JNPT forecasts for the commodity
JNPT liquid cargo traffic was estimated for the categories of crude, POL product, chemicals and other liquids . JNPT has no crude linkages with existing refineries and does not service crude traffic at present.
The crude traffic forecast for JNPT was based on ONGC plans to ship a part of its offshore crude production at Bombay High via JNPT to the coastal refinery of Mangalore.
JNPT POL product traffic is largely coastal based traffic which follows national trends of coastal traffic. Exports growth from the increase in refining capacity in Mumbai region was factored into the forecast. Since the port can handle certain liquid chemicals these were studied and grown at appropriate growth rates to arrive at liquid chemical forecast.
